  1. Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments
    This week Kate Bush returned to the stage after 35 years, Blood Brothers reunited at FYF, and Buster Poindexter joined Arcade Fire. Grimes released a great new video (but not an ice bucket video). We talked to Sinkane, Mutual Benefit, and in our latest #longread profile the guys from Merchandise. We ranked AC/DC’s albums worst [...]






  2. Suuns – “Sunspot” Video
    I can’t promise you that I spent 32 minutes watching this Suuns video, but I can promise you that the option is available to you if you want it. The clip, directed by Suuns frontman Ben Shemie and inspired by Richard Serra, involves lengthy footage of the sun and much washing of hands (it’s about [...]






  3. The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
    Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and with it, the unofficial end of summer. So, in hindsight, what was the Song Of Summer 2014? “Fancy”? It was probably “Fancy.” What else even came close? “Anaconda” arrived too late, “Happy” peaked too early … ” “Rude”? “Problem”? Eh. Feel free to shout out your own Songs [...]






  4. Watch Thom Yorke Play Another Surprise DJ Set At Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
    Radiohead main man Thom Yorke apparently really enjoys showing up at random gatherings and playing music for whoever’s there, even if it’s just eight people in a field in Cornwall. Way back in 2009, he showed up at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles and spun records. On Tuesday night, he was back there again, [...]






  5. Lemonade – “Minus Tide” & “OST”
    The New York trio Lemonade made their name by crafting hazy synthpop jams, and three albums into their career, they’re sticking with the sound that brought them to the dance. The band’s new LP Minus Tide arrives in a couple of weeks, and they’ve already let the world hear their songs “Stepping,” “Orchid Bloom,” and [...]






  6. The Best Soundtrack Moments Of August 2014: Gone Girl, The Hateful Eight, Guardians Of The Galaxy, & More
    August is, generally speaking, not such a great month. It’s the dead zone between blockbuster season and Oscar season, and the moment before TV’s fall schedule kicks off. So then, this month my favorite soundtrack moments came from all over — from one glorious blockbuster to end the summer, to good-but-not-amazing movies I happened to [...]






  7. Hear Diplo Debut Jack U’s Kiesza Collaboration “Take U There” At Mad Decent Block Party
    Jack U is the EDM wonder-twins super-team of Diplo and Skrillex. Though they’ve been recording together lately, their music only seems to exist in the form of tracks that Diplo plays during festival DJ sets. One of those tracks is “Take U There,” a collaboration with Kiesza, the singer behind the monster house-pop anthem “Takeaway.” [...]






  8. Riff Raff To Sam Smith: “Your Face Is Super Huge”
    This past Sunday, Riff Raff was Katy Perry’s date to the VMAs. They wore matching denim leisurewear, an apparent tribute to the outfits that Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears had worn to the show during the peak teenpop era, and they looked terrifying. Both of them were seated in the front row, so the world [...]






  9. Aphex Twin To Hold Syro Listening Parties Around The World
    Next month, Aphex Twin will release SYRO, his first proper studio album in 13 years. This is both a big deal and a weird one, and Richard D. James has concocted an interesting way to let the world hear the record for the first time. Next week, around the world, James will hold SYRO listening [...]






  10. Nai Harvest – “Buttercups” Video
    We named Nai Harvest a Band To Watch because they’re fucking great, and your latest chance to witness that greatness in action is their new video for “Buttercups” from their recent split 12-inch with Playlounge. The band tells Crack, “Washing machines are cool dude! At the time Ed Crisp; who shot the video, had the [...]
